The Trojans hosted the annual Las Animas Invitational Baseball Tourney over the weekend. With five teams in the field, each was guaranteed three games against non-conference opponents.
The Trojans’ first opponent was the Peyton Panthers. The Trojans struggled from the plate as they only amassed three hits off of the Panthers. Those three hits equated to two runs, but it wasn’t enough as the Panthers won 17-2 in four innings.
Caden Morlan bat 1.00 and had an RBI. Caleb O'Conner batted .500 and also had one RBI.
In their second game of the day, the Trojans faced the Centauri Falcons. Both teams looked to rebound after losing to Peyton.
The Trojans struck first, scoring 1 in the first inning and another in the third before Centauri answered with one of their own. The Trojans added to their lead in the fourth inning with 3 more runs, and the Falcons only added 2 more. The Trojans won in 7 innings 5-3.
Devon Frazier earned the win from the mound with 1 hit and 10 Ks.
From the plate, Ben Nevland was huge with three RBIs and two doubles.
The Trojans had one more game on Saturday against Center. The contest was a four-hour affair that ended in a 18-16 loss for the Trojans. Stats were unavailable.
Las Animas is now 2-3 overall and 0-2 in the league.
The Trojans travel to Rye Saturday for a doubleheader against the Thunderbolt. First game begins at 10 a.m.
